The Kingdom of Ieskarios is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Michael I with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.903 billion Ieskaris enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ieskar. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ieskari economy, worth a remarkable 1,288 trillion Aluds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 218,330 Aluds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Ieskaris. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ieskarios's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Ieskarios is ranked 200,794th in the world and 575th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Least Corrupt Governments, with 49.42 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
